Walk on the streets of La Antigua Guatemala on any given day, and you’ll inevitably hear the rattle of a horse-drawn carriage making its way on the cobblestones at some point. For over half a century, these old-time rides have been available to the public. Initially, they were used by hotels to give their customers a more unique way of seeing the colonial city. Nowadays, this practice from hotels has died out, but private carriage-owners still offer their services to this very day.
